Chapter 3 - The Bandit's Secret

With the exception of Chrollo Lucilfer, it is the first time for the members of Genei Ryodan to fight other Nen users.

Being new on fighting another Nen user like herself was not a problem for Pakunoda. She was fast enough to guard her left cheek with the free left arm, decreasing the damage that she received from the blow.

“Tssssk.” Paku whined.

She was about to answer their opponent with an attack using the butt of her revolver but the old man quickly moved backwards as if he already knew Pakunoda’s next move.

Her wrist did hurt and a couple of bones in her left arm were broken. Although she was a bit injured, that didn’t stop her from chasing the white-haired man. Since her bullets couldn’t hit the target, she decided to entrust everything to her own speed and power. The blonde jumped to the air, readied her right legs and aimed for a spinning heel kick.

Pakunoda throws a kick

The guy who’s already on his fifties was confident that he could easily evade the blonde’s assault. Her moves were indeed fast, but not fast enough to land a single hit on him. That last kick was another wasted effort. He escaped by turning on his left.

“I can see your potential. Too bad you’ll be another meal for my indoor fish,” Jero told Pakunoda.

The old guy had suddenly felt a strong presence and it was approaching him. He realized that there was another person that he needed to worry about.

“There he is.” His calmness didn’t last long when he saw the good-looking guy at the corner of his eye.

Chrollo was holding a conjured book called the Bandit’s secret on his right hand while trying to hit their opponent with a left hand chop. His attack missed, but the other one did not.

Another Chrollo came from the other side and struck him with a right hook. It hit Jero’s chin which sent him flying towards Pakunoda’s direction.

Pakunoda raised her left leg and mashed his body with her heel pinning him down to the floor. She pointed the tip of her gun’s nozzle straight to his face in order to make sure that the bullet would hit if she pulled the trigger.

Astounded by the situation, Jero couldn’t help but wonder if the infiltrators share the same Nen abilities.

“Impossible,” he told himself. “The assassination teams which are always being sent by the mafia are well proportioned. They wouldn’t waste it on hiring duplicates."

“Or could it be that,” the old guy was hit with an idea. “Can he copy the abilities of other Nen users? If that was the case, then he might use indoor fish against me anytime soon.”

What Jero didn’t know is that, Chrollo Lucilfer could only steal someone’s Hatsu. By fulfilling four conditions of his Bandit’s Secret, he would be able to access someone’s Nen ability and use it according to his will. The strict conditions include:

1. Chrollo must be able to see the ability being used with his own eyes.

2. He should ask something about the Hatsu and be answered by the target.

3. The target must touch the hand print of the Bandit’s secret.

4. Everything must be done in an hour.

Besides the above conditions, the former owner of the skill must be kept alive. Otherwise, the skill will vanish from the book and Chrollo won’t be able to make use of the Hatsu anymore. In order for him to access the ability, he must keep on holding the Bandit’s Secret on his right hand.

The target’s skills were able to give Chrollo the advantage. Since the indoor fishes continued to exist on the same room, it kept Sholt alive for the meantime letting the Phantom Troupe’s head to temporarily make use of his power.

“If that’s the case,” Jero came up with an idea. “Then I must act fast.”

Suddenly, Pelt’s shout echoed inside the room. Like his partner, he was bitten into half by the indoor fishes.

“You can stop there. Time to change targets now.” The adversary commanded its minions.

Pakunoda and Chrollo were surprised by the turn of events. The girl was about to pull the trigger when the boss stopped her, “Don’t do it yet Paku... I’ve got an idea.”

While the two were distracted by the deadly fishes coming their way, Jero took the chance to escape from being pinned by the female Genei Ryodan member. He grabbed her foot and tried to throw her away so that he could get up and do his next moves.

Pakunoda was able to quickly see through this. She somersaulted to free herself from the old man’s grip. Upon landing, she quickly aimed her revolver on his direction but her target disappeared quickly. She was too caught up about the old man and completely forgot about the upcoming threat.

One of the indoor fishes had opened its mouth to devour Pakunoda. It was too late when she noticed it coming near her. By that time, she was convinced that there is no way that she could evade it.

“Paku,” Chrollo with his immense reflexes and agility was able to drive the fish away with a strong Nen-enhanced kick. On the other hand, his other copy served as a distraction for the other fish.

“Impressive! No one was able to last this long in a battle against me and the indoor fishes.” The professional Nen user praised the members of the newly built group.

“Both of you could become the next best Nen users in the future. In fact, I was thinking of taking you in and nurture your talent. However, there is a huge risk of getting betrayed by a bunch of assholes again like what the mafia is doing to me right now.” He continued.

“We would need his skill for future use,” Chrollo confessed his intentions to Pakunoda.

“So what should we do right now?” Pakunoda asked her leader.

“Let’s catch him again. Once I’m done make use of your skill. Be mindful of the fishes while we’re trying to do that.” The plan was intentionally given to Paku in a fuzzy manner to confuse or at least prevent the enemy from uncovering their true scheme.

“Okay,” she agreed.

Jero Pysgodu wondered as to why they didn’t kill him when they had the chance. A bullet from the young lady’s revolver was enough to shut him down.  An idea struck him at once.

“I’m sending my indoor fishes away,” he announced.

Chrollo gave a surprised look. As soon as the indoor fishes have disappeared, Pelt and Sholt had felt the blood spurting from the bites and their dead bodies hit the floor seconds after. Sholt’s Hatsu was erased from the book. Chrollo’s duplicate who used to play tag with the other fish vanished as well.

“Hahaha! It is just as I thought it would be,” Jero rejoiced. “You can only make use of the copied ability if the original owner is alive. Am I right?”

The head of Genei Ryodan only answered the old man with his usual stare. Jero was now aware of his ability but not the whole of it. Unfortunately, their opponent has now the edge. They’ve lost two people and Chrollo’s skill was partly revealed.

Jero couldn’t help but smile about his recent achievement. He was able to kill half of the team who had infiltrated the mansion. There are still some assailants outside but he decided to deal with those later after he fed the two to his indoor fishes.

A spark of an idea came to his mind. By giving more thoughts about it he deducted, “I won’t die from this raid. I’m pretty sure about it.”

In his thoughts he continued, “The leader is interested on producing a copy of my power for his own use. That’s the only reason why they didn’t kill me when they had the chance. If he tries to corner me again, I’ll destroy them first. The problem is if they changed their mind and decided to kill me. Worst comes to worst, I will let them copy my ability. With that I’ll remain alive and I’ll just strike back at the right time.”

“But if he copied my Hatsu and kept me alive, it only means that he would be betraying the mafia since the heads want me to die pronto. Nice one. I’ll take that as an opportunity to contact the mafia heads and regain their trust. We’ll work together to exterminate this group. Soon afterwards, I’ll feed the mafia to my indoor fishes for my sweet revenge. That’s the alternate plan. For now, I’ll finish them off.” Jero had concluded to himself.

Pakunoda reloaded her revolver and pointed it to their target’s direction. The Bandit’s secret disappeared from Chrollo’s hand and he took out his Ben’s Knife.

“Danchou, I tho---” Pakunoda was surprised.

“Change of plans Paku. The situation is now begging us to assassinate him at once.” Chrollo Lucilfer stated as if he already knew his subordinate’s query.

“Like what I have anticipated. Consider yourself dead!” Jero started to make a move by conjuring the indoor fishes out of his aura. They appeared beside the master.

“Indoor fish... Eat!” Like a trained dog, the fishes made out of Nen quickly followed its master’s orders by diving towards Chrollo and Pakunoda’s direction.

Both were able to dodge the indoor fishes. Pakunoda escaped to her right while her leader went to the other side. She quickly enveloped the gun with her aura in order to make use of Nen bullets. She fired two shots on the indoor fish that was pursuing her.

The indoor fish was badly hit by the bullets. The impact pushed the Nen creature a few meters backwards to a wall causing a huge crack.

In the meanwhile, Chrollo was continuously being chased by the other indoor fish. He saw what Paku did with the other fish and he came up with a very good plan.

After the indoor fish attacked, Jero decided to take down Chrollo first. Letting him live for long would only increase his chances of losing or to make matters worse, dying. Once the mafia’s assassin copied his ability and learned to use it, he would be in trouble. He thought, “What if they are just planning to make use of the indoor fish and kill me afterwards? I really need to kill them now!”

Going back with Chrollo Lucilfer, he stopped running from the indoor fish and faced it. He stood there with his left hand in defensive position while the right hand is ready to stab or slash with his Ben’s Knife.

Everything is all set for Chrollo until he was attacked from his right side. Jero threw a very strong kick on the Genei Ryodan’s leader which hit him. Chrollo dropped the Ben’s Knife and tried to block the attack but it was too strong that he was sent flying backwards and crashed to a wall.

He was about to stand up when the old man came rushing to him. Jero grabbed Chrollo on his neck and pinned him against the wall.

“Danchou!” Pakunoda exclaimed. She stood a few meters away from the target and started to aim the gun on Jero.

“I’ll take care of your leader while the indoor fishes are devouring you.” Jero then sent the indoor fish that chased Chrollo to attack the girl, while the other one had just pulled itself out from the wall crack. He looked back at the Spider’s leader ready to rob him off of his life.

“Run Paku run! Bring the others here and finish the job without me!” Chrollo calmly gave out what seemed to be his final orders.

“No...” Pakunoda’s voice became soft.

Jero looked at the girl’s direction. He was pleased to see that his assailants were running out of will. “I want to finish it now,” he uttered to himself.

“Come on, Paku. Remember what I told you,” Chrollo reminded his follower.

“My orders are more important than my life... If I die, one of you will have to replace me... Spiders must live on!” Chrollo’s words from her memories echoed on her thoughts. She looked down as if she had already given up.  “Not following my orders simply means that you are betraying the Genei Ryodan.”

The indoor fish that she managed to repel is now ready to attack back. The other one swam through the air to reach her body.

Pakunoda looked up and meet Chrollo in the eye. It was very clear to him that Paku was just trying to keep herself from crying. He was surprised by the next words that he heard from her.

“But I’m not just a follower. I’m not just a member of the spiders. You're not just a leader. You are also a friend!” That was Pakunoda’s answer to Chrollo. “I am free to do whatever I want to save you!”

“Four shots,” she mumbled.

"Four shots" - Pakunoda

She fired two Nen bullets on the same indoor fish that she had shot earlier. It hit the same wall of the mansion again.

She turned back to fire two shots on the last indoor fish that was trying to approach her. Pakunoda then realized that she would get bitten before she could aim and fire a single shot.

Too late to fire another shot

“Haha. You are dead!” Jero was watching the whole time while he kept Chrollo deep in the wall crack with his left hand. “Devour that woman my indoor fish!”

The fish charged with its mouth open ready to consume the member of the Phantom Troupe.

Split seconds later, the fish disappeared in front of Pakunoda.

“ W-Wha-What happened?” Jero couldn’t understand what’s happening. He directed his attention back to Chrollo who was now holding the Bandit’s Secret with his right hand.

A loud explosion was heard after that.  With his own eyes, Jero witnessed as to how the last indoor fish appeared beside the first one and bumped the mansion wall. The wall was hit badly that it created a huge hole where the outside can be seen from it.

Since indoor fishes can’t survive in an open room, they quickly vanished into thin air.

“Teleportation,” the leader of the Spider pronounced. “This is one of the abilities that I’ve earned from my previous battles.”

Chrollo grabbed the arm of the distracted old man and twisted it. He was forced to bow down because of what Chrollo did to his arm. Pakunoda who is now back on her usual self hits Jero hard with the butt of her revolver at back of his head. The white-haired man fell down on the floor unconscious.

“I know exactly what you want to do right now,” Pakunoda said while conjuring a special Nen bullet.

Chrollo’s done placing Jero’s palm on the hand print of the Bandit’s Secret. He ran through the pages of the book and found the new Hatsu written inside of it.

“What you have just done will only endanger yourself and the other members of the spider. You have to follow each of my orders Pakunoda.” Chrollo mentioned her name completely indicating that he is dead serious about what he had just said.

“But...”  She stopped there and realized that her reasons are no longer important. “Yes, danchou.”

By removing Jero’s memory, they would be able to keep him alive. He won’t = remember anything about what happened, his past life and the usage of Nen. They would send him to the other side of the world, give him a new life out of the money that they scraped from the mansion to ensure that Chrollo would be able to use the indoor fish for a very long time. This would also keep him away from the range of the mafia’s influence.

“Indoor fish is now mine,” He  felt happy about his new stolen Nen ability.

“Now, finish your job.” Chrollo walked past her and opened the mansion door.

“Okay.” Pakunoda aimed her revolver at Jero’s head and fired a shot, “Memory Eraser!”


The exchange happened at night. Gon and Killua ran and hugged Kurapika who redeemed them back from the Genei Ryodan by making the deal.

Chrollo slowly walked towards the direction of the two Genei Ryodan members by that time – Pakunoda and Hisoka.

Pakunoda was very happy to see their leader alive. Though he won’t be able to make use of his Nen abilities while Kurapika’s judgment chain is buried on his body, what was important for the woman is it’s all over.

Chrollo walked past her as if he didn’t see anyone.

“I understand,” Pakunoda said to herself with mixed emotions.

“Paku, I would like to say a lot of things or just give you a good stare at least but I couldn’t,” he thought to himself. “As much as I would want to... But spiders must live on.”

Tears are flowing from his eyes as he slowly walked.

“Paku. Thank you for your sacrifice. I’m glad that you've been a member of the Spiders."

Now, he was able understand Paku's emotions. Thanks to his memories.

"More importantly, thank you for being my friend.”

That feeling when you couldn't say all the things that you wanted to say to someone who might be gone forever.

Chrollo Lucilfer was certain that he would lose another limb. He felt the pain of losing a friend and a home. That was the night when Pakunoda went back to the Genei Ryodan's headquarters, broke the conditions of the Kurta by sharing her memories and breathed her last.

Chrollo walked to the edge of the cliff and savored each words from Neon Nostrade's prophecy:

The Prophecy

Part of the precious calendar will be lost
the remaining moons will deplore this loss
the orchestra in his bereavement outfit will play his melody
when November will be taken away in the peace to the heights

Chrysanthemums will wither together with its leaves
Lying beside the scarlet eyes soaked with blood
Even then, your sublime status will never be shaken
Even if only half of your limbs will remain

To increase the fascination within the drama
Should a search for a new companion begin?
If so, then head to the east...

........You will definitely meet the one who is waiting for you.
